|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Other Accession||A2VE67, P46691|
|Calculated MW||26215 Da|
|Antigen Region||204-226 aa|
|Other Names||Gap junction beta-2 protein, Connexin-26, Cx26, GJB2|
|Target/Specificity||This GJB2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 204-226 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human GJB2.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||GJB2 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||One gap junction consists of a cluster of closely packed pairs of transmembrane channels, the connexons, through which materials of low MW diffuse from one cell to a neighboring cell.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell junction, gap junction|

Gap junctions are conduits that allow the direct cell-to-cell passage of small cytoplasmic molecules, including ions, metabolic intermediates, and second messengers, and thereby mediate intercellular metabolic and electrical communication. Gap junction channels consist of connexin protein subunits, which are encoded by a multigene family. GJBs (gap-junction proteins or connexins) play crucial functional roles associated with these channels. Immunohistochemical staining of human cochlear cells demonstrated high levels of GJB2 expression. Mutations in GJB2 are associated with genetically derived hearing impairments, including autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness.
